[Freeware]GameSave Manager

post #1 of 412
Thread Starter 
NOTE: I did not create this program. InsaneMatt did.
His first post in this thread can be found here.
I'd also like to note that I didn't "find" this program; I am an ALPHA tester.


What is GameSave Manager?
GameSave Manager is a FREE program which allows you to backup, restore and even transfer your gamesaves to other machines.
It's great for those who like to share gamesave progress with friends/family, format frequently, paranoid about data loss, etc...
No longer do you need to rummage through loads of directories, trying to find your GameSaves; GameSave Manager does it for you.
Have a game that's not supported? No problem; using the "Custom GameSave Entries" you can define your own GameSaves for GameSave Manager to search for.



GameSave Manager does not come bundled with any "nasties" (adware, spyware, etc...).
Excluding it's optional "Check for Updates" and "Auto-Update" features, GSM doesn't access the internet.

Still not sure? Try it in a Virtual Machine and see for yourself!


Download:
You can download this program for FREE via the official website.


Officially Supported Games:
The "Officially Supported Games Database" is always being updated.
You can find a full list of officially supported games via this link.

As of 02/01/2013, there are 1984 Games supported.

Updating the "Officially Supported Games" database:


Hidden Text Below! (Click to show)

To receive the update, do one of the following:
  1. Launch GameSave Manager with the "/update_db" commandline (requires you to allow GameSave Manager to access the internet to download and apply the update directly).
  2. Enable the "Auto-Update" function (again, requires GSM to have internet access).
    GameSave Manager will then automatically update the database next time you launch GSM.
  3. Launch GameSave Manager and click the "Check for Updates" button from the Main Menu (yes, you've guessed it... requires GSM to have internet access).
  4. Manually download the database update. Extract the gsdu file from the zip archive.
    Now do one of the following:
    • Double-click the "gsdu" file (requires the File Association with ".gsdu" files to be assigned with GameSave Manager).
      ...OR...
    • Run GameSave Manager with the following commandline:
      "/open: %1"
    Where %1 is the full file path to the .gsdu file.
    Include the quotation marks around the commandline too!



Spread the word:

Feedback:
InsaneMatt is always greatful for suggestions, opinions (both positive and negative), etc..
Found a bug? Please let him know; after all it wont get fixed if no-one reports it!
Want a game to be "officially supported"? Let him know, and he will see what he can do.
You can contact him via this thread, the PM'ing system of this forum, the Official Website or even Xfire.

your welcome

theres also a new update

Changes in 1.3 (Build 1139):
-----------------------------
--Fixed a detection issue for the "World of Goo" entry.
--Fixed a minor issue with the "Update Reminder" displaying every day if the user sets it to 00.
--Minor alterations to the "Default Configuration", allowing GSM to be more portable.
--A complete re-design of the "Program Settings" page, making it easier to use and more professional looking.
--GameSave Manager will now save to %LAUNCH%\\config if it hasn't been installed (where %LAUNCH% is the full path to where GameSave Manager was launched from), allowing it to be truely portable.
--Altered the way GameSave Manager stores the "Last Updated" date.
--Improved the way GameSave Manager "remembers" the last directory used (now includes Settings too).
--Setup Wizard change - "Additional Options" are now listed BEFORE installing.
--Setup Wizard change - A new option has been added ("Don't create a Uninstaller"), it's designed to help the user make GSM portable from the get-go.
--Slight re-design to the HTML page GameSave Manager generates.
--Added a "Don't display Icons or game-save paths in the list" and "Don't show the GSM Banner in the list" options to the Program Settings - useful for those who just want a basic list to view.
--Very minor tweaks performed to the Detection Engine.
--A few alterations to the "Help File" have been made.
--Added compatibility for the following game(s):
----Colin McRae: DiRT
----Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

also anyone can help add more games easily by veryfying that there custom gamesave entries work

Glad you've found it useful.
Just remember to backup your Settings if you have Custom GameSave Entries (do this via the "Backup" button on the Program Settings dialog).

I cant tell you how many headaches ive had trying to transfer my game saves from one OS install to another.
IDK if Batman Arkham Asylum is on the supported games list . But Gamesave Manager found my offline gamesaves and transferred them perfectly.

Again, I'm glad you've found GameSave Manager useful.
With regards to Batman: Arkham Asylum, yes it is supported.

You can check what games are in the database at any time by clicking "File->List current supported games". This will list both "official" and "custom" entries.

It really blows my mind that more people arent aware of this. Nor do they seem to care. I cant stress how incredibly easy this was to use, nor how many headaches it is going to save me. point, click, reformat, install, point, click, done, GAME. Again thank you . I cant wait till everyone realizes how kick arse this is to have. I even keep a copy on my keychain flash stick cause I tell you what it sure is handy to have when I need a game save from a friend, etc.
